Thor #346 Review by (October 8, 2013)
Review: The complex plot becomes clearer and Simonson’s art depicting the Wild Hunt is magical. And Lorelei is an idiot for her barroom boasting.

Comments: Part two of four parts.

Thor #346 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Roger Willis, following his father Eric’s instructions, heads for the hiding place of the Casket of Ancient Winters, dodging agents of Malekith on the way. Thor, meanwhile, has been alerted to the escape of the Dark Elf and is on the same quest. The Thunder God heads to the police station where Eric was held and the cops, under the villain’s spell, give him the faerie cookies but his divine constitution fights off their effect and he escapes.

Subplots, grouped in one place: Lorelei brags in a bar of her romance with Thor and it comes to the attention of Malekith’s agents. In the desert, Balder sees a woman pursued by a giant Sand Devil and goes to her defense as the assassin (Agnar Son of Hrothgar from issue #338) marvels. Surtur summons his armies to battle.

Roger recovers the Casket from its hiding place near an abandoned highway. Malekith arrives too late and summons the Wild Hunt to pursue him. The faerie hounds attack Roger on a bridge and his pistol proves effective but limited against the pack; Thor arrives to aid him and clobbers Malekith with an iron girder so they can escape. Thor takes Roger to Melodi’s apartment for refuge and she gives the Thunder God a secret love potion (her scheme all along). Then he discovers that this Melodi is an illusion, the real one (i.e. Lorelei) is Malekith’s hostage at this kingdom in the Cotswolds, and the ransom price is the Casket of Ancient Winters….
